All of the candidates on the March 25 Concord Town Election ballot have agreed to participate in the League of Women Voters’ Concord Candidates’ Forum.
The forum will take place on Sunday, March 2, 2014 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Town House Hearing Room, 22 Monument Square and will be free and open to the public.
The Concord-Carlisle LWV is hosting the event to give voters an opportunity to learn more about each of the candidates running for local office. The snow date is March 9.
The first panel will be comprised of Eric Van Loon (for Town Moderator, 1-year term) and Michael Lawson (for Board of Selectmen, 3-year term), both running unopposed. David Garrison and Wallace Johnston, candidates running for the one available seat on the School Committee (3-year term), will share the stage for the second panel. After the panels, voters may meet the candidates informally.
Nancy Carapezza of the Wayland LWV will moderate the forum, posing questions from the League of Women Voters and audience members. Voters may email questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org; the deadline is 5:00 p.m. on March 1.
The League plans to record the forum for later broadcast on CCTV local cable Channel 8 and for on-demand viewing at www.concordtv.org.
